Print Day in May, the first Saturday in May, celebrates the art and community of printmakers. It’s a day to get together in studios across the world to make prints.
Each year participation grows; we have had people from Australia, Argentina, France, Mexico, and of course, the US. Printmakers have opened their studios to friends, used their cars as presses, made prints on the beach all to spread the joy of printmaking.
Come join us on as we make prints on May 6th, 2017. Chime in here to let us know where you printed, with whom, and then send a photo or two to post on the site.
Print Day in May began in 2007 at the Monterey Peninsula College (MPC), Monterey, CA. The MPC Fine Art Print Club (now the MPC Printmakers) created it to encourage printmakers everywhere to create prints on the same day . . . an all-inclusive printmaking effort! Join the MPC Printmakers, and make some prints during Print Day in May!
